The Waste Factory (De Verspillingsfabriek)
Bob Hutten is General Director of culinary and hospitality service provider Hutten and founder of De Verspillingsfabriek. Hutten wants to be of significance. For each other and today’s society, but certainly tomorrow’s too. For organizations, values such as fair business, transparency, innovating, co-creating, sharing knowledge, trust and investing in sustainability, health and vitality are important pillars. According to Hutten, a company must listen, inspire, share, give and help.
Significant entrepreneurship goes without saying to Bob Hutten. Thus he is the initiator of the open innovation network Foodsquad which strives for a different food system and De Verspillingsfabriek (‘the waste factory’) where they produce tasty products like soups and sauces with residual flows of vegetables. De Verspillingsfabriek gives the first large-scale answer to the food waste in the Netherlands. Hutten also endeavors to offer people with a distance to the labor market a workplace. Everyone deserves an opportunity to discover his or her talent, to use it and to feel valuable.
